< 1 MONTH LEFT: aiming for 710 [#permalink] New post 23 Nov 2003, 06:29
Hi all,

I am planning on taking the GMAt in less than a month's time on 15th December.

I have completed the SC and CR sections of the official guide, 180 questions of RC, 120 in PS and 60 in in DS. I have taken tests from KAPLAN, Princeton and both the PP tests already. My progress so far has been thus: started with kaplan tests where I got between 550 - 600 on the first 2. Then studied a little and got between 600-650 on Arco tests. Then studied a little bit more and got 700 and 680 on the PP tests .. this was last month. Last week I took the free online kaplan test and got 690 (though many questions I had seen before).

I am pretty comfortable with MATH, SC and CR with RC unquestioonably being my weak link.

I have the GMAT+ material with me too which I have not started yet. Also there are hords of useful links in this forum that I have not gone through like the LSAT links and other questions in this forum and on the web in general.

What study plan would members of this forum suggest for me from here on ... BB, I value you advice .. so please help me out here.

Do I bang on the OG and complete everything first in the next 10 days before going on to other material?

Do I start with GMAT+ material now?

Do I got through the LSAT questions and other on the web?

Please advice.

thanks,
.

Forgot to mention ... I am working full time with quite a bit heavy workload, so don't get more than 2 hours everyday and try to squeeze in 6-10 hours over weekends.

I got 710 on GMAT preparing for about 3 month in total about 1-1.5 hours a day, but for one week before test I took vacation and prepared every day for about 8 hours. Don't rely much on preparation tests, they are quite easy. On last days of my preparation I almost only practiced different tests, because with every test question you understand logic and fundumentals of the tests better and adjust yourself to working under time conditions.To understand logical rules of GMAT is the most crucial thing for me in GMAT, especially for SC and CR questions. Secondly, every day I tried to improve my English vocabulary bu using "flash" cards (on one side - the word, on the other - explanation). On the last day I just repeat all the complex Math - probability, combinations and so on.
Good luck.
P.S. Don't waste too much time on Internet on last days.

I just previewed the LSAT CR question today from the Kaplan LSAT books. They seem 2 be of a much higher standards than the GMAT questions I have encountered. The main differences are

- The questions stimulus is typically much longer than that of GMAT
- The language used is usually more formal and includes non standard vocabulary!!
- The answers choices are much more similar to one another tahn GMAT. GMAT answer choices appear to be more distinct, and hence easier to identify the correct answer.

I would advise you to plan out your time, and accordingly do the LSAT questions. GMAT questions, (based on my experience) is closer to GMAT OG than LSAT. LSAT might require more time than a month.

Thanks for your advice/suggestions guys.

Also based on what I have done already is that a good base (with respect to what I have completed till now and how much time is left) to build on to reach 700?

Where to get the explanations of answers to the LSAT tests?

If you are using kaplan LSAT, the answers and explanation are provided. However for some of these open LSAT questions floating around, they usually have teh answers but no explanation.
